The day the Starr’s made

I got to spend the day with my favorite people!

These kiddos are just everything! They keep me laughing and make my heart sing!

Stippling my foundation into my nose

I also tried a new makeup technique. I have an oily T zone and my makeup tends to slip off in an oil slick on my nose. Yes, I’m over 40 and this is still happening 😝.

Right after makeup application.

First I put primer on my face except my nose. Then I put concealer, then I stippled in foundation and followed up with more concealer just around the flares of the nostrils and on the sides (I wear glasses). Once I blended it out past the time you would think to stop. I then sprayed my beauty blender, dipped it in translucent power and then pressed it into my nose until blended. I then finished the rest of my makeup the same.

You can see some makeup did come off through the day but I’m

Then I created a new intro for my videos. I’m so happy with it! My dad’s song is the music called Rise. You can check it out here!

We ended the night with pizza, movies and cuddles. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Hermes is recovering famously! He’s an awful good cuddler.

While we were out I fell in love with these cute note pads.

Too much fun! We can make the most mundane things fun! I got this great shower cap at the Dollar Tree! Any time I get to spend with my loved ones is good!

Anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous night! Make the most of of the mundane. After all, this is what most of life is made of. The time in between the big things. Cherish these moments with the ones you love. You will never get them back. 💖

Derma Planing at the Spa

I had quite a day today! First thing this morning I had to take our little Hermes to be neutered. He’s recovering well! The hardest part is keeping him from doing too much.

Once I get him situated I ran to Kendall Yards to workout in the gym. Since I work in Kendall Yards I get membership to the gym. Since I had an appointment at Spa Paradiso with Sydney our esthetician I was able to steam and use the Swedish showers. We don’t have to talk about how I somehow turned the water to freezing and popped the lever off. I fixed it all back and ended up with a nice shower. Even if things started a little hairy to begin with.

I will update with how well my makeup goes on and looks tomorrow.

What else would you like to see me get done? What would help you?

Thank you all so much!

Facial Toner Recipe

I was taking to my mom the other day. She has sensitive skin and wanted advice about how to sooth and renew her skin. I shared my recipe for the toner I use daily and thought you would enjoy it!

I also sent her the facial moisturizer I’m loving right now. I’m 41 years old and have combination skin, oily but dry spots. I used to think I had to rid the oil from my skin so I used harsh drying agents. But would still be greasy. I finally discovered that I needed oil but not grease.

I’m obsessed with snail secretion moisturizer. I’m telling you Korean skin care is Ah-mazing! The formula is FDA approved.

This moisturizer is thick, creamy, oily but not with a residue and not greasy. My face is plump after and I haven’t had any dry spots since using it either! I’ve also noticed my makeup is going on smoother.

Let me know if you have any interest in my facial moisturizer! I’m working on getting it to you!

I am planning on getting derma planing. Are you curious about derma planning? I’d love to bring you along with me!

Until next time,

Shine like the Starr You Are!

Hooded Eyes, what to do!?

So I have hooded eyes. To be honest, I didn’t know what this even meant. My eyes don’t have hoods! Oh! But they do act as a hood over my eyes. While this happens naturally as we age, some eyes are just born this way.

If you look at my eyelids, they hover over my eyes covering some of the mobile lid. There are hooded eyes that cover more and less. There is nothing wrong with your eyes if they are hooded. This is just something to keep in mind when applying makeup.

I go above the crease more so that my eyeshadow shows. When I put my eyeshadow on as those without hooded eyes, it looks like I only did my mobile lid. So I have to be a big more dramatic about it.

I do like doing a cut-crease like I did in this picture. If you’re interested, I can make a video on eye makeup for hooded eyes. Let me know in the comments if you’re interested in hooded eye tutorials.

When do lash extensions or strips, hooded eyes call for longer in the center and shorter on the sides. This will bring the eyes out and look the best. Obviously, you do whatever you feel makes you look your best. These are merely suggestions.
